This book explores how the therapist's own narratives can facilitate and stand in the way of effective therapeutic processes. Examining influences of family, culture and gender, the power of the emotions, and how language reveals our assumptions and prejudices, this book offers clear and concise guidance to help therapists and supervisors alike.
